Call did such a great job with our wedding! I came home to a CD with all our pictures on it, no watermarks. They were great quality and once we pick out our favorites we will get an album with retouched photos (not that they really need them). Can't wait to see the video as well! Tad (who was our videographer) and Cal were so much fun to have around and they had no problem following us to different locations for pictures. %100 recommend Pro Click. Very professional and flexible!

We wanted to quickly resolve any awkwardness our guests might feel at our same sex wedding, and we were lucky enough to find the right solutions with East Coast Productions. DJ Jeff was sensitive to our concerns, had great ideas to bring our guests together quickly, had a great music selection, used lights and large video screens throughout the night. And people danced all night -- we disco'd and rocked, we followed Jeff and his younger DJ through a line dance, and even had a sing along with Garth Brooks! We had the time of our lives, and all of our guests are still bragging about the fabulous night they had! These two DJs interacted well with our guests, looked great, were very professional, and were really fun! And they were easy to work with. I can't thank them enough for making our wedding day such a wonderful success! I highly recommend East Coast Productions for any party!

Initially we inquired for a photobooth rental. When we learned that he was also a photographer and offered us a deal, we couldn't refuse. His quality of work is great. With the anticipation of an engagement shoot in public, we were really nervous but Damon directed us and made us feel very comfortable. He even let us use our props and take photos with our pups. Everyone loved our engagement photos. The quality of the photobooth was great! We had a flowerwall backdrop that he worked with and that along with the photobooth was a BIG HIT at the wedding. The lighting and quality of the photos were great. As for the wedding photos, we're still waiting on them but we are so excited to see how they turn out. He and his second shooter and assistant were great.

I hired Core Studio Production to shoot a video for my business. Ash was quite amazing and professional. I wanted a video that covers what I do which is makeup artistry and show my clients who I am in a short and sweet video. Ash did all I asked for plus more. It was also quite a fun experience for me. I felt that the video was a new and a great way to indroduce myself to all my potential clients as soon as they visit my website. I would totally hire them again for any new projects. This is actually the 2nd time I used their services and I am again very pleased. Thx Ash, as always you were fantastic to work with.

Working with Gary was a great experience. When I arrived on location early he was already set up and ready to go. We recorded an installation video for my product. When I described the project I assumed we were going to do a simple shoot, but Gary went over the top and shot the install from multiple angles and even found a model for some of the shots in the video. Will definitely work with again and highly suggest working with Gary and Films4Good. Professional and friendly, overall great experience.

My wife and I booked Mike and his team for our wedding reception. They were excellent from beginning to end. The dj had everyone dancing all night long. We loved the lights and video screens that they had set up. My family and friends are still talking about how great the party was. Thanks Mike and MB2 Entertainment. We can't wait for our next party!!

Thank you, John! We booked John just a few weeks before my son's Bar Mitzvah to do a portrait/family shoot at the synagogue. John showed up on time, worked well with the family, and in addition to the standard shots we listed, took a few "in the moment" shots. Those are some of my favorites!

Working with Angela of Acquainted Wedding Productions was one of the *best* decisions we made while planning our wedding. We chose the package for a highlight video. She was a complete joy to work with from our initial conversation to the last email with the finished video, and was very flexible, professional and punctual throughout the entire process. She made it very easy to contact her when we had questions and delivered the final video faster than we ever expected - all while incorporating our ideas and feedback into the final product. Her vision and style are spot on and she and her assistant captured some of the most beautiful shots of our wedding - we especially love all the little moments they caught that we weren't even aware of at the time. They also caught all the sweetest moments of our vows and the speeches that we are so happy to be able to relive forever. We were even on the fence about having a videographer at all in the beginning stages of wedding planning, but we are so glad we did! The value and her quality of work are top notch. We 100% recommend Acquainted Wedding Productions to any couple looking for a wedding videographer, or even anyone looking to film any special occasion - you will end up with a beautiful video that you'll treasure forever.

It can be scary picking photographers and videographer for your big day because you want everything to turn out perfectly; you know that these are the memories you'll have to look back from your wedding day for the rest of your life. I can honestly say I am so incredibly happy I found Joe and chose him to be my videographer. Joe was awesome! His communication was great, he brought great gear with him to make sure he captured different angles and styles. He seriously did a fantastic job and made a spectacular wedding video for my husband and me. Everything was so beautifully captured! I love re-watching the video from the day. The footage came out great and the quality of the video is super professional. He also gave us all the raw footage too! Which I'm super grateful for because some of those smaller moments of that day are the ones that will fade over time so to have that footage to look back on as well is really sentimental. You can't go wrong with him. I'd rehire him again if I had to do it all over again!

David Garrett Photography and Video worked with my upstate New York non-profit community development organization on our annual fundraiser and produced some great video clips for us to use for media, funders and corporate volunteer engagement. David Garrett worked within our budget constraints and was extremely professional and friendly, especially with our many and varied resident and neighborhood participants. We could tell we were in very good and knowledgeable hands and would highly recommend David and crew for any project!

Joe was an amazing person to work with. It was important for him to get a handle on the project first. Then he dove right into it. He was always available for questions before the date of the video and responsive to the particular needs of the assignment. In addition, he was more than prompt in sending the final product to me and making adjustments that the client requested to enable the video to meet with their very strict specifications. I highly recommend his services to anyone corporate or private who is in need of video productions.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

What should you ask your wedding videographer before hiring?

Finding the perfect wedding videographer doesn’t have to be stressful. Asking a few key questions upfront will help you find the right fit for your big day. Before talking with wedding videographers, research their work online. Look at their websites, business profiles and social media, and see what their finished wedding videos look like. If the style fits what you’re envisioning, it’s time to reach out. During initial contact, make sure you get along with the person. This is important since they’ll be interacting with you and your guests.

Your first question should be about their availability; there’s no point in going further if they’re booked on your wedding day. Ask to see references if they’re not readily available online. Next, it’s time to talk about money. Ask how they determine rates or what kind of packages they offer. When you settle on a rate and the services you want, make sure to have a written contract that outlines everything, including cost, length of time they film, what post-production will include, and when you can expect to receive the edited project.

When do you pay your wedding videographer and wedding photographer?

Most wedding videographers and photographers require a set deposit when you hire them. Wedding season is a busy time and a deposit secures that vendor’s services for your wedding date. It also protects the vendor if the couple changes their mind at the last minute, and they can’t find a new booking and lose work for the day. The deposit may be anywhere from 20 percent to  50 percent of the agreed-upon total price. Always get a written confirmation that your deposit has been received.

The remainder of the wedding videography and photography bill may be due in the week before to your wedding or on the day of the wedding. Other vendors may require a second payment immediately before the wedding and a third and final payment after the wedding video or photos are delivered. Each vendor has their own policies, so before hiring be sure to read, understand and agree to payment protocols. There is no requirement for tipping wedding videographers or photographers, but if you do want to tip them, the end of the reception is the appropriate time. 

How much is videography for a wedding?

Wedding videography is one thing many couples regret not paying for. It may seem like just another expense during wedding planning, but it’s really special to have a moving memory of your big day. The national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. Pricing can vary depending on wedding length, special film features, the amount of editing required, and how many videographers are needed to cover the event. Many videographers offer packages that provide different levels of service. A very simple wedding documentary could be $600 or more, while a full-scale cinematic experience involving multiple videographers could be $2,500 or more. Here’s an example of average package pricing:

  • Package 1: $1,400
    • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple.
    • Two cameras with audio equipment.
    • DVD including a 3- or 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event.
    • Recordings of guests’ good wishes to the couple.
  • Package 2: $1,800
    • Includes everything from Package 1, plus an additional videographer (2 total) and aerial videography.  
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
